The obvious cause would be a bad voltage regulator. If you search google there are some pretty easy ways to test that. I have the same motorcycle that had the same issue and the regulator tested fine. I noticed that the entire wiring harness was getting hot as well. It ended up being a jumper that someone had put in place of a fuse. The jumper wasn't letting enough current travel through the electrical system. I removed the jumper and installed a fuse. Problem solved.

SOURCE: need to know oil capacitie on 99 xv 250 virago

The XV250 has a total oil capacity of 1.8 litres but that's only from completely dry. If you're simply replacing the oil there will always be some left behind after draining and in that case you will need 1.4 litres. If you're replacing the oil filter at the same time you'll need slightly more ... 1.6 litres.

SOURCE: Short???

not only headlight is energised when the key is turned on,so it could be anything on the switch,dont just replace it over and over,your wire harness will continue to acrue damage. Check for fuse purpose, then look at that circuit for damage
Tail light may be blown or be grounding out.(may be the problem)

The head light is out


Hi, Anonymous if your headlight is not working, keeps burning out, blinking, or is dim the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn, chaffed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
3. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
4. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
5. Faulty ignition switch.
6. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
7. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
8. Weak charging alternator/generator.
9. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier, overcharging.

If the headlight goes out on my 82 virago 750 will the horns not work and should the high beam indicator still come on even if the headlight is blown


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

On your electrical questions for a Virago 750:
  • if the headlight goes out will the horns not work - yes, the horns should still work;
  • should the high beam indicator still come on even if the headlight is blown - yes, even if the headlight bulb has burned out.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
